This lady had a very good blog about books. She has picked some books she is looking forward to reading in 2011. Bed is one of them. I like her. You can see her blog here:
Or, I’ve cut out the bit about Bed here:
Bed by David Whitehouse
Mal is different from other kids. Part-prophet, part tyrant, he runs rings around his family and friends and dreams of changing the world. But as he grows up he experiences an extravagant metamorphosis. Recounted by Mal’s charming younger brother, Bed tells of the rise and dramatic fall of Mal and those around him. Enchanting, enigmatic and unforgettable, it captures brotherhood, romance and parenthood, and explores how love always has a price. Bed also asks what it is we need to get out of bed in the morning.
I’ve read I, Lucifer in the past by Glen Duncan and I like his subversive, dark comedy so I am looking forward to this book. The blurb to Bed sounds interesting!
